Who is Alfred Williams? 

Meeting aims to make more people aware of the Wiltshire poet, author and historian
 
Over fifty people attended the New Central Library for the launch of the Alfred Williams Heitage Society.
 
A society that aims to spread knowledge of the late 19th/early 20th century poet, author, historian, Alfred Williams.
 
The Society was formed by Dr John Cullimore, Graham Carter and Caroline Ockwell who want to make more people aware of Alfred Williams, the story of his life and the legacy he has left through his writing.
 
"I think Alfred Williams is such a big part of cultural history in Swindon, commented Dr John Cullimore, Chair of the Alfred Williams Heritage Society.
 
"We have organised tonight as a way to raise his profile and explain why the society is bidding for a grant from the Heritage Lottery board."
 
Singing Surgeon
 
John Cullimore can also be referred to as the Singing Surgeon after he released a CD, The Hammerman, which traces the extraordinary life of poet and writer.
 
I wrote the CD to help keep his memory alive and help him to reach a wider audience.
